Northern Light (Gunflint Trail) Water Levels

4 posts in this topic

I'll be heading up to the area in 2 weeks. I wanted to take my fiance out on northern light so she can get some good moose viewing and I can catch a bunch of pike...just wondering how the water level is? I was there in september and it was LOW!!!

I would say that the lakes right now are low but not as low as they were last fall.

Wife and I might be up on the 2nd of June. If not then the 16th for sure. She lived up there for a while. Do you camp there or just fish for the day?

I believe there is 1 walk in campsite, but that's it. I stay at the outpost motel (very good people running the place, been staying there since I was in diapers) just outside of grand marais...I fish a different lake everyday while I'm up there.

      At least10% of all eggs hatched at the Pike River Hatchery are returned to Vermilion waters every year. According to DNR statistics that percentage is usually a much higher survival rate then if they had let the walleyes spawn naturally! I consider that a good trade off! Cliff

      They should not be  going  back to area waters or traded to  other dnr  districts they should go right back into LAKE VERMILLION !!!  Don't ya think its time the dnr   should start to listen  to the paying public, us ! [trappers, hunters,  fisherpeople ,boaters and snowmobilers ]

      Yes, they are all done at the hatchery. Finished up two weeks ago this Saturday (4/15). Just waiting for eggs to ripen and hatch to go back out to area water bodies.

      Can not say for sure, but there is parking outside of the park next to the boat ramp and also a turn a round road.
